Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a slowly progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by impairment of memory and eventually by disturbances in reasoning, planning, language, and perception. Many scientists believe that Alzheimer's disease results from an increase in the production or accumulation of a specific protein (beta-amyloid protein) in the brain that leads to nerve cell death.The likelihood of having Alzheimer's disease increases substantially after the age of 70 and may affect around 50% of persons over the age of 85. Nonetheless, Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging and is not something that inevitably happens in later life. For example, many people live to over 100 years of age and never develop Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's disease at one point of time was considered as untreatable but with the advent of newer techniques it is very much curable and person can live a normal life. The best treatment of Alzheimer's disease is through a surgery called Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Surgery. In this surgery a small device is implanted inside the patient's brain which stimulates the brain when required. There are very few doctors who specialize in this type of surgery. One of the best doctor is Dr. Parveen Gupta who along with his team has treated patients with Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery successfully.
